Summer Foraging


Foraging is a great way to get outdoors, learn more about native plants, experiment with new flavours, and become more connected to your local ecosystem. Learn how to safely identify and cook wild summer edibles at this introductory workshop. Foraging for wild berries, edible plants, shoots, and leaves in the summer is fun, easy and great for families, foodies, and hikers alike. Come learn everything you need to know to safely gather, prepare, and cook unique flavours found only in nature. We will learn about cattails, liquorice fern, nettles, berries, wild chamomile or whatever we find on our walk. This is an identification walk only (no picking) and it includes a sampling of wild edibles and discussion with our wildcraft expert Robin Kort.

This beginner level workshop will cover the following:

  1. How to safely identify and gather wild summer edibles
  2. Practical identification experience and a guided forest walk with Robin during the workshop
  3. Preparing and cooking wild summer edibles
